Nestlé’s Smarties sharing block is now being produced in a recyclable paper wrapper. Almost 3.5 million Smarties blocks are bought each and every 12 months and the corporate sees this as crucial subsequent step in shifting the Smarties confectionery vary of goods to paper packaging.

The Smarties block packaging is comprised of a covered paper this is broadly recyclable. It is the primary time that the generation Nestlé pioneered has been used for such widescale manufacturing.

Richard Watson, trade govt officer for Nestlé Confectionery in the United Kingdom and Ireland stated: “At Nestlé, we have committed to making 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. But we know we need to go further – and we are looking at a range of more sustainable packaging solutions for our confectionery products that can have an impact now. Moving the Smarties confectionery range to paper is one demonstration of this intent, and we are very pleased to introduce the Smarties sharing block in a fully recyclable paper wrapper.”
